Nintendo president Satoru Iwata is set to take the stage at the Game Developers Conference this year with a keynote presentation he calls Video Games Turn 25: A Historical Perspective and Vision for the Future.

It will be the 25th anniversary of GDC this year and it won't be the first, or last, time that Iwata keynotes the event. He first spoke in 2005, then in the following year 2006 and recently in 2009.

"We are honoured and pleased to welcome Mr Iwata back to the keynote stage for our 25th conference," said GDC's director Meggan Scavio.

"Nintendo continues to innovate and captivate developers and gamers alike, and we're looking forward to their unique insights into both the history and future of the game business."
